Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I was pulling into a convenience store parking lot. As I pulled into the space in front of the store and stepped on the brake, rather than slowing down the car picked up speed. No matter how hard I pressed on the brake the car did not stop. It suddenly shot forward. The car hit a brick wall of the covenience store, - cracking the bricks and damaging the front of my car. I was in the car with my two daughers. The car shor forward so quickly, my daughter thought we were hit from behind.
